bmi regional New flights Aberdeen-Kristiansund

bmi regional has announced the launch of a new scheduled service linking Aberdeen and Kristiansund in Norway in August 2013.

The service will be the first direct, scheduled air link between the two cities, which are important hubs for oil and gas activity, and will start on 28 August 2013. The single daily flight will operate Monday to Friday from Aberdeen International Airport using an Embraer 135 jet.

Kristiansund is the major oil and gas city on Norway’s mid north-western coast. Oil companies including Shell and Statoil have offices in the city from where they serve their offshore installations at Haltenbanken, one of the most northerly subsea oil and gas provinces in the world. There are currently around 13 offshore installations (including subsea structures) being serviced from Kristiansund and this will increase to over 30 by 2020, including the building of a 500 km gas pipeline. The city, which spans a series of islands, is also a major cultural centre which hosts several festivals each year and provides the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding region. Scotland is also anticipating a boost to tourism from Norway.

The Kristiansund route is the second new scheduled service launched by bmi regional from Aberdeen in the past year. Its Bristol service started in October 2012 and the airline also operates from Aberdeen to Esbjerg in Denmark, Manchester and Norwich. Its scheduled network currently serves 23 destinations across eight European countries and it is operating more than 450 scheduled flights a week this summer. bmi regional already operates UK services out of Gothenburg in Sweden and Billund, Copenhagen and Esbjerg in Denmark.
